Well-known teen psychologist Andrew Fuller provides practical and humorous advice on how to ensure both you and your teen survive the teenage years.
tricky teens provides parents with a step-by-step guide to understanding what is really going on in the minds of their teenagers - and why; handling common conflict situations faced by every family with a teenager and successfully navigating common difficulties; creating a relatively peaceful happy family environment; and raising your teens so that they can successfully leave home, get a job and become wonderful adults. tricky teens is Andrew Fuller's follow up to the hugely successful tricky Kids, which has lifetime sales of over 17,000 copies.
A clinical psychologist, Andrew Fuller has spent years helping parents understand and assist their tricky teens to safely navigate adolescence. He says that the key to understanding teenagers is to realise that their behaviour is caused by two things: the routines and habits that are ingrained in their lives and their families' lives; and the neurochemicals and hormones washing around in the massive soup bowl called their brains. Learning how to parent in ways that manage the heady heights and deep troughs of moods and acts caused by these neurochemicals is life saving and sanity preserving.
tricky teens is divided into four sections:
1. Neurochemistry and Habit: What really causes tricky teen behaviours
2. Overcoming Common Problems: helping teens successfully navigate commonproblems such as anxiety, arguments, computer addiction, the opposite sex, reclusiveteenagers, sibling conflict, suicide prevention, zombies and zits
3. Changing patterns: A six-week program for re-establishing communications withyour teenager
4. Essential Conversations: twelve essential talks to have with your teenager including:-How to be an adult.-How to develop a good reputation and keep it.-Honesty: why it is important.-Developing empathy and compassion.-Finding romance, saying no to romance you don't want and keepingromance alive.
Andrew Fuller was a man whose active life was devoted to the work of God. His paramount desire was to be true to the Scriptures. Fuller had a deep concern for sinners and was untiring in his evangelistic endeavours and support of missions. In The armies of the Lamb Fuller’s rich spiritual life is seen first-hand through a selection of his letters, some never before published. Editor Michael Haykin presents Fuller to a twenty-first century audience with a freshness that encourages personal spiritual renewal—something Fuller so longed for in his time.
